Conferences

SCG conferences are an opportunity for funders to come together, connect, and learn about trends in the sector. We provide a platform to learn about critical issues, policy trends, and bold new philanthropic strategies that directly impact our sector and the communities we serve. SCG’s information-rich conferences, including our Annual Conference, Family Philanthropy Conference, and Public Policy Conference, help to broadly build community and knowledge within the philanthropic and nonprofit communities.
